Novation Peak and Summit Patches by Lightbath

via @WeAreNovation

"Our latest patches’ update features composer, improviser and educator @lightbath with his ambient Baby Steps pack. Styled by planting musical seeds that through improvisation, develop and grow into pieces that unfold in the present moment. Access here >>>"

"Composer, improviser, and educator Bryan Noll explores time and space with his musical project, Lightbath. Taking inspiration from Brian Eno's view of composers as gardeners, Noll plants musical seeds with his synthesizers and, through improvisation, guides their development and growth into pieces that unfold in the present moment.

Noll developed his sound and process as Lightbath by making YouTube videos showing the physical act of coaxing music out of modular synthesizers. As Pitchfork puts it: “Once you have submitted to these videos, it can be hard to pull yourself away. The artfully unpretentious demonstrations… occupy a strange, sui-generis niche: Featuring balmy sounds, blinking LEDs, and low-key set-dressing, they are part performance, part tech tutorial, and part audio-visual wallpaper.”

Lightbath has releases on RVNG Intl and Seil Records as well as the self-released ‘Selected Public Works’ series which features remastered versions of the pieces on his YouTube channel.

The 33 zones in this patch bank were created on Peak and feature the use of Mod Wheel and Aftertouch, as well as the Animate buttons for deeper expressive control."
